rotations of A.    Find the rotations and direction of motion of the arm
to cause them.   (Hons. Applied Mechs. Exam,)

Referring to Fig. 974 and to p. 522.
If A be fixed and the arm rotates +


C's turns = H      for one rotation of arm

and C's turns = x (* + -)    fr x rotations of arm.

While these take place, imagine A to make y rotations, either -f
or  , let us say minus.

Total turns of C =
Then by Case (i)

/. x = -1-8

And the arm must turn through r8 x 360 = 50 in the same direction
as the rotations of A and C.

Again, By Case (2) : taking A's turns minus,
3 - *+i*+^
/. x =  1-4

or the arm must turn through 1*4x360 = 504 in the same direction
as C's rotations, but opposed to those of A.

Example 79. A rope has its direction changed through two right
angles by passing round a grooved guide pulley whose diameter is
12 ins. ; the diameter of the axle being ij ins., and \i for axle = "07.
How is the efficiency of the pulley affected by axle friction when a
load of 2500 Ibs. is being raised ? If the- pulley were fixed so that it
could not turn, how would the efficiency be affected by the friction of
the rope on the pulley when ^ = *6 ? (Hons. Applied Mechs. Exam.)

Case i.       P = 2500

P1= 2500+   (P1 + 25oo)x *07X~        = 2536

Efficiency =           = -98
